Grilling season is in full swing and we are all excited to be back enjoying our bbq favorites. By now, we have all had our fill of the regular old grilled burgers we get every season. It's time to kick or burger game up a notch or two....
Hamburgers are the quintessential American summer grilling season food. American's have been enjoying them since the early 19th century. The concept of the hamburger didn't originate her in the U.S. but in Germany. It is inspired by Germany's Hamburg steak.
Burgers in the food world have been widely debated lately, with all of the new alternate meats coming on the market. People also debate constantly what constitutes a burger and what doesn't. Truthfully, I believe ground beef, turkey, chicken or vegetarian they are all burgers to me. It's what you do with them that makes them truly unique and delicious.
Each region of the country has different ways to enjoy their favorite burgers. In the mid-west people enjoy them stuffed with cheese, in the south west people love chili on theirs and out west they like them piled high with avocado. Personally, my favorite way to enjoy a burger is with cheese and lots of fresh toppings. I am a vegetarian so mine is usually a veggie burger or alternative meat one.
Any way you grill it burgers are a must at your next bbq. What is your favorite burger?
